2.1 Introduction

Self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) have been intensively studied in the past few years because of their relevance in science and technology.1 Due to their dense and stable structure, SAMs have potential application in corrosion prevention, wear protection, biosensing devices, etc. The ability to tailor both the head and tail groups of the constituent molecules makes them ideally suited for a more fundamental understanding of phenomena ...
